Hi, I’ve just bought a 165w led light for my marine tank from amazon.
Just looking for some advice on the white and blue settings as I’ve bought some soft corals for the first time and don’t seem to be doing well after 2 days.
Thanks Craig

Softies will sulk like mad when first added to a tank. I don't have any advice on your light unit, but you could try dropping the whites down a bit and bumping the blues up and give it a few days.
